NCQA's office practice performance assessment program,
Physician Practice Connections (PPC) involves a set
measures standards associated with comprehensive
systems in three critical areas: clinical information
systems, patient education and support, and care management.
Physician Practice Connections is a voluntary performance
Meeting PPC standards means that practices use connections--to
information, to patients, to other practitioners, and
to evidence based medicine. Based on health services
research showing the importance of these connections
to quality care, PPC recognizes those practices that:
- Create personalized care plans
- Work with patients over time
- Follow up with patients and with other providers
- Manage populations using evidence-based care
- Employ electronic tools.
Physician Practice Connection's performance categories
are part of a larger number of activities practices
may be involved in to deliver quality, safe and evidence-based
care. We also encourage you to contact the physician
or practice directly.
Bridges to Excellence does not independently verify
